Holmen Fluoride Issue May Go Back To Referendum

Written by

Voters in Holmen spoke out about fluoridation five years ago...and they may be asked to speak out again.

The Holmen Village Board has scheduled a special meeting this Thursday...to discuss the possibility of a new referendum on putting fluoride in the water. Just last week, the board voted to resume the fluoridation that was temporarily halted two years ago. The special meeting is being requested by two of those board members who called for a halt to fluoridation...which was approved in a 2008 referendum.

A couple of new sexual assault cases from the weekend in La Crosse County...

Shane Henry of Holmen is charged with second-degree sexual assault and strangulation. Bond for Henry is set at 10-thousand dollars cash.

Another man charged with two assaults is being let out of jail, since he has no prior record. But the prosecution wanted a cash bond for 26-year-old Kevin Koster.  Koster's attorney admits that alcohol could have contributed to the crimes, which may have involved Koster and up to four other people after a visit to a bar.

Bus Crash In Vernon County

Written by

Heavy fog may be to blame for a school bus crash this morning in Vernon County. It happened around 9:20 in the Town of Wheatland.

 

51 year old Dwight Veglahn of rural Genoa was driving a school bus for Desoto Area Schools, northbound on State Highway 82. As the bus was turning into a church parking lot in heavy fog, it was struck near the rear wheels by a car driven by 47 year old Timothy Fergot of rural Viroqua.

Fergot sustained minor injuries and was transported by private vehicle for medical treatment. There were twelve children ages 7 to 18 on the school bus. Four children reported minor injuries and three were transported by Tri State Ambulance.

The longest-serving inmate now in the La Crosse County jail is set to be tried for homicide in March...or maybe April.

 

Cain Moss has been in jail for 17 months, since being arrested for the drug-related death of Anthony Du Charme. Today, Moss's attorney, Candice Tlustosch, said in court that she plans to seek more testing on autopsy samples from Du Charme.  That testing could delay the planned March 18th start of the trial. Moss is charged with reckless homicide for giving drugs to Du Charme, and with concealing the man's body on a hillside.

Fluoride Returns To Holmen In April

Written by

There are still some objections to fluoridation in Holmen, but the practice will resume there on April 1st.

The Holmen Village Board voted 4-to-3 last night to resume fluoridation, which was halted two years ago, just days after it started. Public works director Dean Olson says the delay until April will give citizens time to prepare for fluoride in tap water, if they're already using fluoride treatments.  In 2011, Holmen's board suspended fluoridation until the state could recommend a proper fluoride level. That recommendation finally happened this month.
